Once again, we have found ourselves faced with uncertainty surrounding live events like Rodeo All-Star Weekend. Together with event management, we evaluate the current state of this global pandemic, the government guidelines, restrictions, and our continued commitment to ensuring the health and safety of rodeo fans, contestants, and event staff. With all things considered, we have decided NOT to host Rodeo All-Star Weekend in 2021.
The good news is we are looking forward and have secured a date for the 2022 Rodeo All-Star Weekend. Save the date, April 15-16, 2022. We are already busy planning the pro rodeo events and country concerts with all-star talent, all-star competition, and all-star excitement.
If you have questions about tickets please contact our ticket office at nwtickets@nationalwestern.com or call our office at 303-295-6124 and leave a message. We will return your call as soon as possible.
